3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
24th June 2014
Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and airy. Fine carbonation. Smooth sweetish malt, light cream. Big floral ginger but only modest heat. Mild tangy bourbon provides a nice contrast. Light and slightly bitter finish. Ginger warmth lingers on. Unusual and drinkable.

Bottle thanks to young Kenny. It pours deep brown with a tiny beige head. The nose is sweet, spicy, gingerbread, candy, oak, bourbon and vanilla.the taste is boozy, wood, bourbon, earth, rough, rubbing alcohol and ginger with a short finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Lacks depth and not overly drinkable. Unrefined.

Hazy amber with some floaties. Creamy beige head. Smells like ginger foremost. Medium to medium plus bodied. Ginger and alcohol..that mostly sums it up for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a beautiful clear mahogany with a thick and fluffy pale buff head. Bourbon and ginger dominate the aroma - OK, except that they let only a snippet of malt peek through. Flavor has notes of bourbon, oak and ginger plus a hint of sweet vanilla. Texture is quite fizzy, if a tad thin, leaving a bourbon and ginger finish. Not the best of the Brrrbon series, but worthy of a snort.
